We all wore our super cool red shirts that our principal gave us to celebrate our "A" status. It really made us feel good to see that she feels this way about us! Since you can't see our shirts, I included a snapshot from the website that sells them.

|Shades of Meaning|
In between the back to school festivities and hoop la, there was rigorous work going on. Our first lesson was on shades of meaning. I used the book First Day Jitters to get us going. The kids did quite well with the lesson.
|Reading Response Notebooks|
We put together our reading notebooks and made some connections with the book "Cookies". I love reading this book to the students. Not only is it a great book about character traits, but it also has rich vocabulary in it.
Do you like checking tasks off of your list as much as I do? I wanted the students to have mini anchor charts that they could reference. So we put together these writing offices. Not only do they give the students something to reference, but they also store work and provide storage.
